Kaukauna Fire Chief Jake Carrel, along with four other Fox Valley fire departments, have enlisted the Wisconsin Policy Forum to help them consider options for enhanced collaboration or new service sharing arrangements. The report presents options that would allow the departments to “start small” and build over time toward more comprehensive collaborations. On the other end of the spectrum, should the five departments and their respective municipalities ultimately wish to “go big,” then they might consider a single Fox Valley Fire Resources Bureau to regionalize the large array of support or specialized services addressed in this report. The new report responds to a request covering a range of service sharing options for fire departments serving Kaukauna, Appleton, Grand Chute, Neenah-Menasha and Oshkosh.
